IP Control, AI workflows and 360 motion replay - EVS to present new innovations at IBC2017
IP4LIVE – guiding a smart transition to IP
At the show EVS’ IP-enabled UHD-4K flexible live production servers – the XT4K and XS4K – will be demonstrated with expanded capabilities. The servers provide a flexible solution for any production infrastructure whether SDI or native IP. New updates will natively support SMPTE 2110 IP standard.
Also on display will be EVS’ brand new Broadcast Controller for IP– a software platform that lets users orchestrate live flows within an IP infrastructure. Users can manage a production’s integrated endpoints to guarantee bandwidth and provide monitoring and probing of flows as well as secure the IP fabrics for next-generation facilities.
Highlighting the new possibilities enabled by IP, stand 8.B90 will also showcase previews of live production workflows using models borrowed from IT data centers. Thanks to the adoption of virtualized infrastructures, tomorrow’s production workflows are becoming more flexible and able to, support optimized business models.
Connected and Creative Live ecosystem
EVS’ Connected Live will be on display - showcasing EVS’ infrastructure technology and solutions including the new C-Next and C-Agent applications designed to facilitate and guarantee reliable collaborative live production. By deploying EVS’ Connected Live technology users can break down the traditional barriers of production and bring together people on different sites to create today’s most effective remote live production workflows.
Visitors will also be able to see demonstrations of EVS’ Creative Live – toolsets and models for better and faster live storytelling. With the new plugin tools such as IPLink for Adobe and Avid – editors and post production teams can create more engaging content, faster and more effectively thanks to the collaboration between the teams. All the new solutions presented at IBC2017 natively support UHD-4K and HDR workflows.
With a new way of applying a data center approach to live production switching, DYVI’s scalable, software-defined architecture uses Connected Live models to deliver more Creative Live programming. With its software-defined architecture, DYVI is challenging the market’s traditional switchers with unequaled elastic scaling while engaging the next generation of technical directors and live video operators.
Technology & Live production innovation
A new area on stand 8.B90 will demonstrate the power of EVS’ R&D with innovations and proof-of-concepts previously deployed at some of the biggest events in the sporting calendar. On display for a hands-on demonstration will be EVS’ new 360-degree motion replay system. Operators are given spatial and temporal control of 360-degree camera feeds which they can use to create and output slow motion replays from any number of virtually-created camera angles.
Innovative AI-powered auto-framing and social media publishing functions incorporating machine-learning technology will also be demonstrated. The artificially intelligent system automatically adapts the frame-view within live content and can also post near-live video content directly to an operator’s social media channels.
EVS will be introducing a new all-in-one production solution designed specifically by EVS for smaller productions of up to six cameras. Built with EVS’ software-defined foundation, a single operator is able to cut together live feeds, coordinate replays, overlay graphics and playout live content all from a single completely configurable touchscreen.
EVS will be presenting these innovations – and the rest of its latest in live production technology – on stand 8.B90 at IBC2017. The exhibition and conference will be held at the Amsterdam RAI between 14-18 September 2017.
EVS is globally recognized as the technology leader for live video production. The company introduced Live Slow Motion replay in 1994, and has continued to build on its reputation for quality and reliability with solutions that enhance live sports, entertainment and news content. Innovations – such as the C-Cast multimedia platform and DYVI software-defined switcher – are raising the bar for live production enrichment, management and distribution. Broadcasters, rights owners, producers and venues alike use EVS to maximize the value of their productions and increase revenue streams.
The company is headquartered in Belgium with offices in Europe, the Middle East, Asia and North America, and provides sales and technical support to more than 100 countries.
